Crash Reports

Due to their confidential nature, Texas crash reports are not available for online viewing by the general public in accordance with Texas law.

Texas Crash Report Forms

This page contains the Crash Report forms and instructions used to report all crashes. Due to TxDOT’s 10-year retention policy for crash reports, and changes to the forms over time, there are three groups of crash reports and instructions to be used by law enforcement agencies when reporting crashes:

  • 2017 Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report Forms – To be used for crashes that occurred on or after Jan. 1, 2017.
  • 2015 Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report Forms – To be used for crashes that occurred between Jan. 1, 2015 and Dec. 31, 2016.
  • 2010 Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report Forms – To be used for crashes that occurred between Jan. 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2014.

TxDOT also offers the CR-3 Alternate Texas Peace Officer’s Crash Report form that is formatted to include the crash report codes within the report.

Note: The CR-3 and CR-3 Alternate forms are for use by Texas law enforcement agencies only.
